    List Top 5 Names from Range

    Hello,

    I am creating a spread sheet for ranking various restaurants. I have an "Average Rating" Column with a value assigned for each restaurant. I have created a box labeled "Top 5" and I would it to populate the names of the restaurants with the top 5 average values. As the values change, I would like the list to be dynamic as to change the hierarchy of names.

    I have attached the spread sheet.

    Column B is the Restaurants and Column R contains the corresponding values per restaurant. The formula should be inputted into cell T3 and go down to T7.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hey xladept,

    Thank you for your help. I am getting a #NUM! display. Is there a problem with my cell format?
